Into the Mix
Mary Kate Olsen is a great example of a celebrity who is constantly mixing up their look whilst in keeping with their trademark look. Ms MK can always be relied on for a good fashion analysis, and she's never afraid to be disected (er, so to speak) by wardrobe critics, self declared or "professional".

So to say that seeing that Mary Kate has once again switched up her style pleasantly surprised me, would be a contradition...

Dressed in white, Mary Kate looked all the better for ditching the strict-black wardrobe that she seemed to have confined herself to of late, when she rocked up with Ashley to the Seventh on Sale Dinner in New York on Thursday evening. Dressed to kill in a supershort romantic dress and neon pink Giambattista Valli stripper shoes (or if you want to be proper about it, his "Victoria shoes", she gave Ashley, who opted for a Jil Sander a-like gown, a run for her money.


I suspect that her new dye job was because of a beach wedding that she attended last weekend, where she and Ashley were bridemaids. Despite the wedding's boho beach mood, she no doubt felt the need to smarten up a little and go more glam. Funnily enough, both Ashley and Mary Kate's bridesmaid looks were very similar to the dresses that they wore on Thursday; Ashley in something simple, well cut and very 1990s, while Mary Kate opted for something a little more experimental and romantic.


Let's have a look at the Mary Kate Hairstyle Timeline.


After that Harpers Bazaar editorial back in September, many people, including myself and deexdeexdreamer (of Pistol Whipped) have been left intrigued by the carrot wig that she wore and wondering how she would look as a fiery redhead.

I love the timeline, a lot of the colour changes are pretty subtle so when it happens it isnt big news but when you show them all together you see just how much she changes her look
I loved her shoot in Harpers, it is such a good magazine, the photo shoots are like something out of pop but it's cheaper, monthley and there are articles in it! yey!

Anyway I'm off to make pancakes

I really wish Mary Kate would go back to the reddish blonde hair, so much nicer. And the sheer height of her footwear never fail to amaze me.
